They cover geek news in regards to movies, television, gaming, politics, and comic books via commentary, news, videos, and ranting. While poking a bit of fun at some of the more highly revered comic book websites, they’ve decided it’s time to respond to either their boring ‘unbiased’ reporting with something a bit more nuanced and interesting or respond to their decidedly progressive liberal politics with opinions from the libertarian and closer to the right side of the aisle. Sometimes things may get a bit extreme, but they always welcome diversity of ideas here and anyone with a free Disqus account is welcome to push-back or sound-off in the comments sections (as long as they’re not a name-calling jerk).

Questionable Content is an internet comic strip about friendship, romance, and robots. The world of QC is set in the present day (whenever the present day actually is) and is pretty much the same as our own except there are robots all over the place and giant space stations and the United States wasn’t ravaged by a pandemic in 2020 and…okay so there are some differences. But it’s not too far off!!! Anyway, it’s set in Northampton, Massachusetts, and follows best buddies Marten and Faye as they navigate life, make friends and forge relationships, and there is definitely some robot smoochin’ later on. If the giant archive of comics intimidates you, don’t worry- you can pretty much jump in anywhere and have a general idea of what’s going on in a dozen strips or so. If you’re looking for what THE AUTHOR, would recommend as a good place to start, he would say 3500 is a pretty good jumping-in point for the current state of the comic.

He was with Green Lantern every step of the way for a long time and only left the book a year or so after “Emerald Twilight” because I just couldn’t accept what was done to Hal Jordan and the entire Green Lantern mythos.
In fact, he left comics altogether and only picked up issues when Hal would show up until finally returning to the hobby during DC’s “Day of Judgement” event when Hal was returned to the land of the living, well, sort of anyway. 2009 marked the 50th anniversary of the modern Green Lantern mythos. With the renaissance of Green Lantern and all the new ways the character is being promoted in different forms of media, the author felt the time was right for him to start a site and give something back to the characters that gave him so much.

On November 16th, 2008 two self-proclaimed ‘Lanternologists’ made their podcast debut with ‘The Lanterncast Episode #0’.
Since the launch of the show, the LanternCast has steadily evolved into a podcast tour de force by hosting contests, setting up a booth at CGS Supershow, creating a family-like fan base in their forum, and inspiring unique segment breaks such as; ‘The Larfleeze Report’, ‘The Fear Files’, ‘Letters to Zamaron’ and ‘If the universe erased you from existence I wouldn’t even care, in fact, I’d probably be pretty happy about it.’
On the 5th year anniversary of the start of their show, show starters Jim Ford and Dan Kurtzke sadly announced that they would be stepping down from the LanternCast and handed the reigns over to co-host Chad Bokelman.

Raised in a life of wealth and privilege, summering in Barbados and getting a brand new Lexus every year since his 16th birthday, the Drunken Cat’s neighbor has a pretty good life indeed. The Drunken Cat, however, knows none of these luxuries. He has had to work hard for every drop of bourbon he has consumed. When he is not battling zombie, ninja cyborgs, his frail, shabby frame, disfigured by years hunched over a drawing table, can be found trying to rub the remaining brain cells he hasn’t killed with alcohol together in a vain attempt to come up with something to make you laugh. His uncoordinated hand trying to sketch an image he can barely make out through near blackout level beer blurred vision. The least you could do is buy his stuff.

People know comics when they see them, right? Something that is comics mixes cartoon art and the written word to make either a single picture or a series of pictures. Spider-Man and Family Circus, right?
Well, maybe. Perhaps more than any other art community, people close to the field of comics actively debate the definition of their medium. Many adhere to a verbal-visual blend theory given best expression by the cartoon historian R.C. Harvey: comics mix words and pictures. In recent years, a sequential art definition favored by cartoonist Scott McCloud has gained favor. In McCloud’s view, comics are a series of pictures, with or without words, and the progression between the pictures is where the art takes place.

Not all of these people are well-known for their acts; for example, for every Oskar Schindler, there’s a Lois Gunden (look her up!).
They are creating a series of graphic novels to highlight these lesser-known true human stories of bravery, compassion, and humanity, and the lives of the people behind them, each one telling the story of a different Unsung Superhero.

If you have ever seen Dan Piraro’s critically acclaimed comic Bizarro (and you have: It is published daily in over 360 papers), you know that he doesn’t see the world like the rest of us do. His single panel gems are a unique concoction of surrealistic imagery, social commentary, and witty plays on words. Indeed, if Salvador Dali, Garry Trudeau, and Oscar Wilde had an illegitimate child, that child would be Dan Piraro.
Catsu is umm… a “small family business”, I guess, which is actually run by 2 people and one cat. All artsy stuff is created by Daria, yet editing, motivation and support are made by D., my DBF. When we don’t do Catsu, we do design and photography.
A cat Dita is their Muse and inspiration. She is one very special cat for them and you can probably say they are cat-persons to the point when it even gets a bit eccentric 😀
Catsu started a couple of years ago when I got obsessed with the idea of making small batches of designer items united with a theme of one certain character — a little black cat with a bit crazy look
